Movie Review – Bedeviled (2018)

Bedeviled, 2018.

Directed by Abel & Burlee Vang.

Starring Saxon Sharbino, Bonnie Morgan, Brandon Soo Hoo, Alexis G. Zall, and Matty Finochio.

Synopsis:

A group of teens are dangerously threatened by a spirit in a malicious, A.I. app following the mysterious death of their friend.

But the funny thing is, Bedeviled, directed by first time feature film directing pair, the Vang Brothers, is a horrible mishmash of much better, scarier, interesting horror movies. An interesting concept is turned into a hilariously stupid conceit, and the writing, also penned by the Vangs, is about as nuanced and handled as a glitchy app.
